Multiple-choice decision making

How do people make multiple-choice perceptual decisions in a noisy environment? That is the core question of my postdoctoral research project. In the project we will test the ability of mathematical models of decision-making to capture the behavioral consequences involved when the number of response alternatives increases. In turn, these models will inform and constrain analysis of fMRI data.
